A lovely place to have meetings, luncheons and my niece’s rehearsal dinner! Spacious, well laid out, and a wonderfully preserved HISTORIC HOME that now houses the TALLAHASSEE GARDEN CUB. A true GEM downtown off Calhoun Street–one not to be missed!

A gorgeous site filled with beautiful plants and kind service. I took my graduation photos here, it was the perfect place with all the flowers!! They have a huge variety of plants and flowers, and you can even sign up to get coupons on future plant purchases for free!!

They catered and bar tended and were very courteous, helpful, accommodating and made sure we were satisfied with every aspect. The location is beautiful also – the building and outdoor patio are elegant and decorated delightfully for the holiday season.

Nice large old southern plantation style house to serve as reception venue. We attended a memorial service with probably 150 our more attendees and there was plenty of space. Only knock was limited parking for a crowd of that size.
